Both fragile and non fragile patients with PTSD can benefit from ISTDP treatment.
About this Event

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as an incapacitating condition a person experiences after life threatening trauma. Often childhood adverse experiences and attachment trauma underpin and color the picture of PTSD. Intensive short-term dynamic psychotherapy (ISTDP) is a broadly applicable, relatively brief treatment method for the spectrum of patients with PTSD.

In this 3 day video-based immersion course we will review the metapsychology of this method, then will use video to detail treatment of two cases with post traumatic stress disorder. One of these cases will have mainly muscle tension anxiety without prominent dissociation and the other will have dissociative phenomena as a component of fragile character structure.

These two groups of patients are treated quite differently with the first group being able to directly access and process emotions related to their traumatic experiences including their childhood attachment trauma. The second group requires various formats of capacity building so that the anxiety is well-tolerated and the emotions can be experienced in a way that is more beneficial and less distressing.

Both of these ISTDP methods can be used to augment traditional cognitive behavioral methods, enabling working with highly resistant patient and also patients who are experiencing such low anxiety tolerance that they cannot easily benefit from exposure-based methods.

The professional attending this course will be able to

• Describe the evidence base for ISTDP

• Describe two broad categories of patients who have posttraumatic stress disorder

• Describe the psychodiagnostic tool of ISTDP

• Describe the process of mobilizing complex feelings and unlocking the unconscious

• Describe the process of capacity building in fragile patients with PTSD

Because this course will be delivered both in person and online, online attendance is only open to people who have peen or who currently are in video base training programs in experiential dynamic therapy methods and their trainers and colleagues.
